80's Flashback

Miquel Brown, So Many Men, So Little Time, 1983. As what some say was the first breakout hit of the post-disco Hi-NRG genre, So Many Men, So Little Time is considered to this day to be a gay dance classic. This, despite the fact that gay DJs nationwide ceased playing it upon the onset of the AIDS epidemic, as its lyrics hit too close to home. DJs dropped it not merely for the song's celebration of promiscuity, but also for its titular dead knell. So Many Men was a European pop chart topper, selling two million copies, and hit #1 on Billboard's U.S. dance chart. I liked it when it was new, but I'll admit that today it gives me chills. Cute video, though.
